Tough test awaits Ghosal

other Updated: Jul 19, 2011 00:21 IST

Sidelined with a foot injury since April, a fit-again Saurav Ghosal, the country's leading squash player, will return to the PSA Tour at next month's Australian Open.

The 24-year-old will feature in a warm-up invitational event in Cleethorpes in England on July 22-23 before hitting the glasscourt for the tough Australian Open, a World Series Platinum tournament beginning in Canberra on August 8.

Ghosal, ranked 24th in the world, has been recuperating from a freak injury he suffered in the semis of the Irish Open in April.

"I have given myself enough time to prepare," he said.

The Australian Open is a top-flight event on the world circuit and all the leading players will be competing. Ghosal has a tough draw as he is slated to meet Australian Stewart Bosewell in the opener.
